Abstract

The purpose of the study was to compare the effectiveness of Braille writing with slate and stylus the conventional method and the A-J+3+6 method. An experimental study was conducted on ten blind students and eight low vision students using mix-method design. Results showed i) method A-J+3+6 is more effective in Braille writing than the conventional method, ii) students who used the conventional method tend to do more mirror errors than students who used the A-J+3+6 method, iii) there is no statistically significant in Braille writing using conventional method when level of vision problem and age were controlled.
